To me crepe myrtle trees are summer.  They are the south.  There is nothing quite like taking a walk on a 100 degree hot afternoon and rounding the bend to come upon a tree like this one.

It is on days like today when the Indiana landscape around me is covered in snow that I have to admit... I wish I was home.

 "The ache for home lives in all of us, 
the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned."
-Maya Angelou

This painting depicts the Ann Street Methodist Church adjacent to the Old Burying Ground Cemetery in Beaufort, North Carolina.
